The 1971 George Harrison hit “My Sweet Lord” was reissued Monday in aid of charity. The single by the former Beatle, who died in November after a long battle with cancer, topped the charts for five weeks in 1971. It was the first solo post-Beatles number one for any member of the Fab Four.

All proceeds from the single will go to the Material World Foundation, set up in 1973 by Harrison to support agencies worldwide that assist poverty-stricken children.
